    Comments: i think that this piece of work is one of absolute beauty and talent. the emotion of the slave is expressed so wonderfully and his pain and captivity is illustrated with exceptional awe. maybe M purposely didn't finish this piece of work to better bring about the message of slavery

    Comments: The sculpture of the 'Dying Slave',is one of the most beautiful renderings of the male bodies, Ihave seen.It is manly,yet graceful.There is a lovely sheen to the surface of the marble.
    The expression on the face of the young slave,is profoundly sad.It's as though he is mourning his youth,now that death is eminent.
    There is also a brave resignation in his look. Ifeel this is one of the MASTER'S MOST MOVING WORKS.
